Intensivists work in the ICU. The field is generally a subspecialty of internal medicine. Emergency physicians can also train to work in ICU's. Residency in both fields typically involves a few months of ICU work.OK Thanks for your help.
So what type of doctors work in the ICU?
They're internists (residents first few seasons then attendings), not EM docs.I get you now
If any of you watch [scrubs] what possition is J.D. Is he an Internist or an ER Doctor? Because more often then not you do see JD, eliot etc... deadling with codes when they are not even on the floor, there pager tells them that there is a code.
Uh, dude, Rendar is a resident and pretty busy. While it's nice that he's on here answering questions, bumping your thread four hours after your last post is pretty demanding.Rendar could use your help here :-(
4 Hours? (Check Again)Uh, dude, Rendar is a resident and pretty busy. While it's nice that he's on here answering questions, bumping your thread four hours after your last post is pretty demanding.
Let me sum it up for you:
"Scrubs" is a TV show. There are some elements of realism but it doesn't accurately reflect all aspects of medicine. If you want to get a more realistic view, you should shadow a doc in the hospital. Please don't get all of your medical info from TV shows.
